The annual flower and plant spring fair in Florence has just begun. Unfortunately on a weekend which seems to be full of rain. Well, if nothing else it's good for the flowers.
Because of the weather we weren't really planning to go anywhere today, but in the end we grabbed an umbrella and headed to Giardino dell'Orticoltura, and I'm happy we did because the fair was lovely - even despite (or maybe actually because of) the rain.
If you are in Florence these days you are still in time to visit the fair which runs until May, 1st.
